In other matters, I confess to having listened to some of toe-sucker Dick Morris: Head Hillary Hater, on Boortz today as he about waxed prophetic, if not poetic, over Hillary's chances in '08, or at least caused Boortz to almost go apoplectic with Hills-stress. (Shame on you Jamie Dupree for even deigning to show-up. How big a bonus did you get for today's lunch-n-spew?)
Interspersed with WSB/Cox Enterprises-sponsored Who Hates Hillary More rally, Morris said Hillary will win in '08 (with Obama as her VP) because the active electorate is increasing rapidly. 55% of registered voters actually voted in the '06 election cycle, as opposed to less than 50% in 2000.
Morris says the numbers will increase to 65% for '08 because all the dumb women and blacks out here in America will finally be roused out of their typical stupor by the cacophony over a woman candidate for Pres. and a black for VP, be delighted with the novelty of it all, and thus actually show-up at the polls for the first time in their pitiful lives -- and vote 'em in.
Morris went on to say that Hillary will then prove to be the WORST President in U.S. history (Topping W? Talk about your hard act to follow.), and thus usher in a Republican majority again in 2010. This of course, if you follow his logic, begs the next question about the next phase... if more people showing up to vote = Democrat victories, then are we expecting tons fewer people to show-up to the polls in '10 to thus reverse this engaged-populace trend and go red again? BTF outta me, this whole Morris-logic in the first place. That might have something to do with his near-psychotic crystal balling-technique, such as this one from Wikipedia:
(Morris further wrote that) Hurricane Katrina would mark Bush's second term the same way 9/11 marked his first term, saying: "Katrina has the capacity to shape the second Bush term in the same way Sept. 11 shaped his first term — not only in rebuilding New Orleans but in taking preventative steps around the nation to bolster our defenses against natural and man made disasters and terror strikes. Responding to disasters is a source of presidential strength and popularity, and Bush is about to show how it is done."
Who needs to watch Fox News when you can tune-in to Cox Land to hear spin spun so fine it becomes freakin' gold-plated shit?!
As for Solomon Brothers Jewelers, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Coolray and Mr. Sparky? I know where I won't be shopping with all my big fat liberal bucks now.
